Great until something breaks...
Fridge was great until about a year ago when my wife noticed a broken small piece of plastic on the floor. Turns out based on my research in the past week or so that it was the freezer door clip. Thought i would be able to live with it (and i did for a while). However, the freezer door now pops open whenever the opposite side is shut. Via this self popping mechanism, i have now left the door open the whole night long without even realising it! Reading the reviews, it appears that this is a very common problem! Talking to a service centre, they ...wanted a $160 call out fee with parts and labour cost on top of it. We could be talking a potential huge bill here all for a small door clip. Disappointing for a fridge which is not cheap to begin with! Great fridge for its features and what not, let down by poor quality parts...
Perfect till 1 week out of warranty
After lots of research to find the perfect fridge for our growing family, we settled on the sharp French door (black glass). It has been fantastic up until 1 week out of warranty when 1 of the plastic clips that hold the freezer door closed snapped off. We also noticed the plastic framing around the glass was cracking and flaking away. Being only 1 week out of warranty we contacted Sharp as paying over 3k for a fridge to only last 2 years is a joke. They sent out someone to inspect the fridge after 1 month and then 3 weeks later have been infor...med that it is not a manufacturer fault so we are responsible for the replacement of 3 out of 4 doors. After doing some more research have come across several reviews with similar problems. Please be wary if looking for a fridge if you want it to last more then 2 years. Sharp have provided very little and slow customer service.
It is perfect for us
Selecting a fridge to replace our 25 year old May tag fridge freezer was very difficult indeed. Westinghouse was the preferred option but the factory had closed and there was no big Australian fridge freezers anymore. What an indictment of the Australian industry.
Productreview.Com had many mediocre reviews of even the "best" fridges within our price range and it seems that there is no correlation between brand name, reputation and reliability. It seemed that the consumer has to choose the best of a bad lot! Finally we decided on the last o...
Great fridge- until recently, perfect.
We've owned the imposing Black french door fridge for three years and 5 days, and it's been great- Makes ice, fantastic access to the shelves and freezer compartments, cheap to run, and very quiet. it's well lit inside and easy to keep clean with two messy boys in the house :) Having large wide shelves means it can take all sorts of things and have room to spare. There's also no fridge smell, even though we love our spicy curries and strong flavours! The glass front looks brand new (as long as you wipe the greasy prints off once a week or so). ...The only niggles are the flimsy clear plastic lugs that raise the lid of the crisper when you pull the drawer out (just the left hand drawer!?) which snapped off a few weeks into owning it, and that it stopped staying closed a few weeks ago. I found a little broken white part on the floor, it appears to be part of one of four retention clips that 'lock' it closed when the door swings shut. Unhappy that the store I bought it from doesn't want to know about the issue, so that tarnishes the experience somewhat, but I'm sure it's just one dodgy part, the other three door clips are fine. I'm currently struggling to find out what a replacement part will cost, but the store is not being very helpful.
the Vegie crisper has ice on the bottom of the crisper so bad that I need to place a hand towel doubled and paper towel. Had a service call , has increased the fridge temperature to 6 degrees, he is not entirely sure why it is occurring.
Wait a week if any improvements.
Purchased an additional three years warranty
A nice fridge.....but
We bought our fridge 18 months ago and have been very pleased with its looks and it operation. We particularly like the ice making feature. The fridge is quiet, holds its temperature well and the freezer design is good and provides easy acces. Our disappointment comes from the flimsy design of some of the plastic fittings. We have broken the vegetable crisper lid several times and the lid of the cheese compartment dropped off and broke a week ago. In both case it was the flimsy design of the pivots that gave way. These components are very expensive to replace (the crisper lid was over $90 delivered), rediculously priced for bits of plastic, particularly given that they are also prone to easily break.
Great Fridge and Great Service
We purchased this model back in 2014 for our new house but due an issue with cracking around the shelf runners in the fridge compartment we put in a warranty claim inside 6 month. I must say that the service we received was absolutely one of our best experiences ever dealing with appliances. We sent photos of the issue to the service centre and within two weeks we had a new unit delivered and the old one taken away. The replacement unit is the updated model Ion Plasmacluster and improved icemaker. To this point it is great! If there was an...ything that took some getting use to it was the noise when the icemaker kicks in initially. It is easy to keep clean both inside and out and it is fairly attractive as fridges go. The internal layout is good with generous shelves in the doors. Being able to make different size ice blocks is great too. We only use rain water for our ice. The lighting inside the fridge is very adequate no matter how much we pack into it. We have two adult at home with us and this fridge is more than large enough for us while not being too big.
Worst Experience Ever!
Stopped working within 6 months of purchase! Terrible product and even more terrible staff and customer care workers. I have had countless emails ignored. I have been without a fridge for 2 weeks now. I'm pregnant and simply cannot afford to live without adequate nutrients throughout the day. I've had these concerns highlighted to your team over the phone and via email, all of which have been ignored. Yet to receive a response, rude phone representatives. Losing my patience and will NEVER purchase a Sharp product again. Nor will I recommend anyone else to do so. Most painful process and experience ever!
Food is freezing in fridge
Had a faulty fan in freezer compartment it was replaced
Since than the fridge compartment is freezing everything
I have the temp set on 4 still freezers everything
My fridge been delivered 5 days ago and I got a SJFS676VBK...the fridge and freezer works very well, keeps everything nice and fresh ... nice design, love it... but children lock it does not seem to work even that I do everything by the book and the lights are on showing me the key still it does not lock...can you please tell me where the problem is Thanks.
Needed a new fridge for the new house and was not starved for choice. Bought this one after much research (mostly because it was a bit pricey) and have no regrets. Food stays fresh, drawers keep things very tidy and easy to see (both in fridge and freezer). One criticism: fruit drawer is really shallow and doesn't easily hold grapefruits or larger apples.
Question: is the occasional 'chirpy' sound normal -- or should I ring for a service?
Keeps food fresh, no cold spots in fridge, drawers keep things tidy and easy to find
Questions & Answers
Hi Sharp Customer Care, we are interested in purchasing this black SJFJ676VBK Fridge but I am naturally concerned with the ongoing problem with the Crisper draw lugs as described by many customers, is this still an ongoing problem or have you solved the problem and if we purchased the fridge how would you deal with this if it happened to us after 1 year ?
